Friendship Flowers

Woo hoo - today is release day for Clearly Besotted Stamps' February collection. The stamps are now available at Simon Says Stamp, and will be available letter at Clearly Besotted.
Today I have another card created with the Friends Forever set. It really is a beautiful set.
For this card, I stamped the gladioli on watercolour paper, heat set, then used my new Gansai Tambi watercolours to colour it in. And WOW - these watercolours are incredible. The pearly white one is stunning - I added it over the pink and even flicked some onto the white panel. It adds a lovely subtle shimmer that is hard to photograph but looks fantastic!

This sentiment stamp is a new favourite. Love the mix of fonts and the way it has been spaced… stamp perfection in my book!

So, to recap my week:

OK - it's my birthday today, so I am off to celebrate with my girlies. 
Have a lovely day.
Bye for now.
